It's been one week since the Gasparilla Pirate Festival n' it's time to clean yar garb! To help ye get the salt and grime out of yar outfit Pirate Fashions has put together a Category System to help ye pick the right methods.

Category One be Dry Clean Only: Articles that fall into this chest be comprised of Corsets, Bodices, as well as Most Coats n' Items made with silk, wool, or velvet. Bring'em to a professional dry cleaner or use an at Home Cleaning Product in a Tumble Dryer.
Category Two be Hand Wash n' Light Dry: Womens Tops n Skirts, some of the Men's Skirts, Silk Bandana n Sash, Waist Coats, n' most clothes with 2 different fabrics or lining. Hand wash in yar wash basin or bath tub with a mild detergent. Gently swirl n' knead the fabrics fer 2 minutes. For yar silks a hair conditioner be a fine way to soften the delicate cloth. Let dry on a rack n' they'll be ready for adventure in no time.
Category Three be the Machine Wash n Cold Water n' Line Dry Category: Bloomers, Some o' the Men's Shirts, Men's Pants, Kilts, Some Women's Skirts n' Linen Sashes.

Category Four be Machine Wash n' Dry: Items in this category be Linens n' Cotton Bandanas, Socks, T-Shirts n' Pre Shrunk Fabrics. Just machine wash cold and dry fer a tough, veteran look! If ye be looking for the respectable pirate look just iron or steam after drying.
